Good policy. It's a burger, not filet mignon. To each his own though.

When it comes to food, always -- as long as it's not illegal. And even then, well.....

Burgers are the ONLY red meat I eat cooked over Rare...I go med-med well typically.

All I want is some american cheese, thick cut bacon, crisp bib lettuce, beefsteak tomato, and some red onion. A dab of mayo and ketchup, all on a grilled poppyseed kaiser.

Somehow I just find the salt & smokiness too overwhelming.
I have to admit, I feel the same way, even about the bacon.

Have you ever ground your own beef for a burger?

I'll take my burger similar to Red Robin's Banzai burger with fresh lean ground beef, marinated in teriyaki and topped with grilled pineapple, Cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and mayo - well done - 95% ground lean sirloin and tenderloin preferably.

I like mine with lettuce and tomato, Heinz 57 and French fried potatoes...

Oh, wait - that's Buffett's burger.

Mine are juicy medium, with a little pink. Mayo (on both sides of the bun), ketchup, yellow mustard, lettuce, and tomatoes. Grilled onions are lovely, and I could care about the cheese if the meat is good.
